harry reid will do. i think the republicy have boxe republicans in saying they're sitting in a circular firing squad. put the bill on the floor, take it to the senate, have that discussion and see what the president will have to say. >> ├žjulian, what's your reacti to that? that makes sense, doesn't it? >> i don't think it's a deal that will get anywhere. the larger deal is republican dealers thought they were making a faustian deal with the tea party and what they did was grab a tiger by the tail. it kind of exposes the phoneyness of the conservative movement because even if you consider where boehner and so-called moderates in republican party are, what they're offering, they're offering tax revenue increases most economists would agree are more harmful than what obama is proposing by raising the upper two brackets. and then this party that paraded around as the big deficit hawks, the guys that wanted to control spending, the only cuts they put on the table is playing at margins, increasing retirement age from 65 to 67 and adjusting rates for social security. this hasn't presented it

in the north arabian sea. perhaps that's why senate majority leader harry reid felt confident enough to declare that until republicans move on tax rates, more spending cuts are off the table. >> the president made clear, i have tried to make very clear, until there's some movement in tax rates, we're -- i'm not talking about any other proposals, not about where there will be a cut here or a cut there. >> no. as a matter of fact, the only cuts the senate is talking about today are in terms of staff on the republican side. with the surprise news today that senator jim demint after blasting speaker boehner's debt reduction plan will step down from the senate to head a conservative think tank. quote, i've decided to join the heritage foundation at a time when the conservative movement needs strong leadership in the battle of ideas. yes, the strong leadership of lobbyists. asked by rush limbaugh if boehner was forcing him out, demint replied, it might work a little bit the other way. let's get to our panel. with us from washington is msnbc political analyst david corn, msnbc contributor dr. jared be

a letter to the majority leader harry reid saying we shouldn't have a negotiation of a treaty during a lame duck session of congress. i disagree with our move here. you had a treaty that was negotiated by my former boss, george w. bush. you had robert dole out there. i think the republicans are upset about diming but again disabilities. most of the major countries around the world have signed this. it should have been done. >> goldie, you in your very being would embody some problems that the republican party has. you're an intelligent woman of color. >> sure. >> what does the republican party have to do to make people like you feel it has something to say to to you? >> you know, i live in the american south and that's ground zero for this modern day gop. what i hear on the ground and i have worked both sides of the aisle. i have been open about that, people know it. >> sure. >> i think there is a policy issue, a set of policy issues, but there's also to a greater extent a messaging issue, and then, you know, in terms of just sheer infrastructure, obama for america put together a technologi

done. and as you pointed out, house speaker john boehner, harry reid also preparing conferences to potentially work through the holidays. that is a tactic to some extent, but it is still an indication that as of right now, there's really no deal in sight. >> right. and now today speaker boehner said the president's plan has absolutely no chance on this hill. take a listen to this. >> the president's called for $1.4 trillion worth of revenue. that cannot pass the house or the senate. and if you look at -- if you look at our budget, we have no new revenue in our budget. the president had $1.6 trillion worth of new revenue. >> so he says it's never going to happen. but the president says he's confident speaker boehner will ultimately cave. are these meetings, these phone calls, are these all -- >> a bit of political theater if you speak to folks who are involved in these negotiations. they will admit that it is important to run down the clock. they want their conferences to feel as though they put up a fight. they can't say they put up a good fight if you don't run the clock down.
